I will be graduating this semester from El Paso Community College and plan to work in the education field. I’m a Christian and love God and feel very fortunate to be able to work at the Westside Church Of Christ. I enjoy performing in shows and traveling because it is so much fun and gives me such an adrenaline rush. Funny thing is, I skate better in shows and demos than I do in contests most of the time. Skateboarding has really helped me cope with some emotional issues that I have and has been my best therapy method. It keeps my mind always thinking and active. Two things I really love to do is to workout and make skate videos. I have been getting pretty good at filming and editing and plan to show my latest video at the World Round-Up.

I have been very lucky to have two great mentors in my life, Bill Robertson AKA Dr. Skateboard, and A.J. Kohn, who have taught me so much about freestyle and life in general. The past 5 years I have competed at the World Round-Up and was thinking about not going this year, but then my mom told me to get out of the house and make friends. No better place to do that than at the World Freestyle Round-Up.
